Here’s one of the coolest things that happened last month at Deneki FIBFest at Andros South – Kirk Deeter brought out some hot-off-the-presses copies of The Little Red Book of Fly Fishing, a great new collection of fly fishing wisdom written by Kirk and the legendary late Charlie Meyers.
During the week and the plane ride home we had a chance to spend some serious time with The Little Red Book, and here’s why we like it.
- It’s 250 pearls of wisdom, ranging from a paragraph to a couple of pages long. Got a spare minute? Read one or two. Got a couple of hours? Read a whole section…
- It’s broken down into five sections that span the world of trout fishing with a fly rod – The Cast, Presentation, Reading Water, Bugs and Everything Else That Matters. There’s technical stuff here, there’s forehead-slapping simple observations, there’s information on etiquette…there’s even an explanation of why women fish better than men. Something for everyone!
- It’s small and it’s bound well, and that makes it really easy to take along on fishing trips. Yes, we did just comment on the format and binding of a book.
- It’s loaded with great pictures by Tim Romano.
- If the names Kirk Deeter and Charlie Meyers don’t mean anything to you, just trust us on this one – you want to read what these guys wrote.
We love The Little Red Book of Fly Fishing and we think you’ll like it too, so we’re pretty fired up to let you know that Kirk has agreed to let us run a series of posts straight from The Little Red Book over the next couple of months. Once a week, a fly fishing nugget from two of the legends of the game. Cool, huh?
Where to Buy the Book
Regardless, if you like to fly fish we think you’d like this book. You can pick yourself up a copy right here.
